Bhutan is among the top 10 country in the world for forest coverage and wild life. Indeed fourth king jigme singye wangchuk had commanded to maintain 60% forest coverage for all time to come.  One of the four pillars of Bhutan’s development philosophy guided by Gross National Happiness is the preservation of environment. Bhutan was popularly known as the Land of medicinal plants and to this day we have abundance of medicinal plants.
